- Clint Hill signs one-year contract extension
- Defender extends stay until 2016
- Hill has made 170 appearances for QPR in five-years
FANS’ favourite Clint Hill has signed a new contract at Loftus Road.
The popular 36 year old, who joined QPR in the summer of 2010, has today (Friday) put pen to paper on a one year extension.
Hill, who has made 170 appearances in all competitions for the R’s in the last five years, is excited about extending his stay in W12 into a sixth year, commenting: “Everyone knows what QPR means to me and I am delighted to be part of the new philosophy that’s filtering through the club. It’s exciting times, and there’s been a lot of good work done behind the scenes.
“My longevity has surprised me – and it’s probably surprised a few others as well. But I’ve looked after myself well over the years, and I’m still going somehow!
“This season I want to remain fit and put pressure on players that are in the team. I want to set standards in training and prove to myself that I can still do this.
“Professionally, this is the longest I have been at any club and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. There have been a few down-turns along the way, but as a team and as a club we have always reacted to them, and bounced back. I hope we can do the same again this year.”

QPR Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, believes Hill still has plenty to offer, telling www.qpr.co.uk: “Clint is a QPR man and the more players you can have on your books that understand what the club is all about, the better.
“He’s a fantastic professional, who gives everything for the shirt, and we’re delighted he’s agreed this new deal.
“His influence around the training ground will be invaluable for the existing group of players, but perhaps more importantly for the new players joining us.”
